    the cupra r front splitter is a very subtle exterior mod mate

    DEFO recommended

    can buy it direct from seat around £21 and easy to fit yourself!!

    Lots of little things you can do I guess. For example I swapped the massive standard arial for one from a civic type r. Nice and compact.

    there is an interior ambient light mod that you can do, puts extra red light in the ceiling - the clips and wires are fitted as standard but the bulbs / holder isnt.

    Honda (type R, s2000 etc...) aerial, facelift lights (if car is pre-facelift), clear side repeaters. OEM 17" or 18" alloys, aero wipers.

    and you a mod that nobody will see:

    lightened flywheel and uprated clutch...LOL

    I have put the knee braces in from a TT, including the leather pads.
    Really uplifts the interior of a pre-facelift.

    And gives your knee something to press on whilst 'enthusiastic' cornering

    One of my fav is my S3 mats from Germany which have the S3 logo embroided on them - makes it look that extra special. Always gets comments whenever someone climbs in!

    Another superb and cheap one is painting your carriers and calipers red. (Or the colour of your car if you like) Cost me £13 from halfords for the paint and brushes and took about 3hours waiting for it to dry and giving it two coats. Really makes your brakes stand out and looks very OEM. In fact the new Mk5 GTI's all have red calipers front and back as standard - looks superb.
